COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moose Drool is our Brown Ale. Far and away the best selling beer brewed in Montana, Moose Drool is chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. Our brown ale is a malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma also mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spiciness being added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Note: ABV went down to 5.1%.

Nice chocolate brown colored draft pour with a small head and decent lacing. Chocolate, nut and caramel notes in the taste. Sweetness balanced nicely with hops. Very nice brown ale.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Indiana_Red. Pours a clear dark brown with a small fleeting off-white head. Toasted and nutty malt aroma with some hints of chocolate. Pretty strong aroma for a Brown Ale. Mixed flavor profile of nuttiness and grainy crystal malt. Finish is lightly bitter with a light chalkiness. Mouthfeel is average for a Brown Ale, fairly thin with a fizzy carbonation level. Overall, your average Brown Ale across the board. Nothin’ special but drinkable.

It had a dark brown color with a spare head. However, the lacing was excellent. It had a nice chocolate taste that was very balanced.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer offers a an aroma of yeast, caramel, and nuts/biscuits. It is a mahogany colored solution with a thin off-white head and good lacing. This thin bodied beer offers a nutty caramel taste that fades smoothly.

jake65 (3397) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Featured a nice blend of maltiness, roast, chocolates, and hops. Not too sweet, but very drinkable. Darked than I think of for a brown, nice rich color like that of dark chocolate. Overall a nice brown ale.

(01.29.6) 12 oz brown bottle as gift from home brewmaster Scott L. Sampled at DiCarlo’s, Mundelin, IL. Clear brown ale having a average off-white head. Soft carbonation. Toasty malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt and notable toasted malt flavor. Finishes dry. Very tasty. A very good drinkable brown ale. Interestingly, when compared in a side-by-side comparison with Scott L’s homebrew version of Moose Drool, Scott’s homebrew version won hands-down. Thanks Scott!

Plenty of sour chocolate tang and chewy doughiness keep this one afloat. Some hazelnuts and toast linger in the background. If I lived in Montana and had to drink this all the time I might tire of it, but it’s a tasty and well-done brown with a solid mouthfeel and just enough fizz to keep it from being weighty. Very nice.
